  • Buddha Head - Antique Thai Style Chiang Saen Mounted Bronze Buddha Head - 33cm/13"

    Measures - (Height) 33cm/13"

    An antique Chiang Saen style mounted Buddha Head, from Thailand. The Buddha evokes a sense of serenity and spiritual depth, standing as a silent witness to the passage of time and the enduring legacy of the Lanna Kingdom.

    Chiang Saen, established in the 7th century, flourished as a prominent city in the Lanna Kingdom. The city, strategically located at the crossroads of trade routes, became a hub of cultural exchange, leaving an indelible mark on the art and architecture of the region. This style of Chiang Saen Buddha Head, is believed to date back to the 14th century. A relic from this era of cultural splendor.

    The Chiang Saen Buddha Head exemplifies the artistic brilliance of the Lanna Kingdom. The delicate features, finely carved crown, and serene countenance are testaments to the craftsmanship of the artists who sculpted this spiritual masterpiece. The slight smile and downcast eyes convey a sense of tranquility, inviting contemplation and introspection.

    The Buddha is formed of a thick bronze cast with good weight. The head is sensitively rendered with a softly contoured face and serene contemplative expression, with arched eyebrows bowed high towards the forehead, set above heavy-lidded eyes, a narrow well-shaped nose, bow-shaped lips with a serene smile, and prominent elongated ears.

    The head is covered in thorn-like hair curls, surmounted by a lotus bud 'Ushnisha', in the Chiang Saen tradition.The lotus flower represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all. 

    The Chiang Saen Buddha Head, like many Buddha sculptures, carries profound symbolism rooted in Buddhist teachings. The serene expression signifies the inner peace and equanimity that the Buddha attained on his path to enlightenment. The closed eyes encourage observers to turn their gaze inward, emphasizing mindfulness and self-reflection.

    The intricately carved crown often features flame-like motifs, symbolizing the radiant aura or "ushnisha" that represents the Buddha's enlightened wisdom. This symbolism reinforces the transformative journey toward enlightenment and the illumination of one's inner light.

    The surface has a beautifully aged malachite patina.

    The Chiang Saen Buddha Head stands not merely as a relic but as a poignant embodiment of the spiritual and artistic legacy of the Lanna Kingdom. In its serene gaze, we find an invitation to explore the depths of inner peace and enlightenment. 

    The Buddha is mounted on a metal and wood base (later).

    This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add serenity to your home, office or sacred space.

    One of the most recognisable of the Asian deities this representation of the spiritual teacher Buddha is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.

We received the reclining Buddha and we love it! Thanks again!

It is an amazing "museum quality" antique bronze!!! For a 19th century bronze antique, I believe the Newark, NJ Museum may express interest if I show them. However, they will never get it and I will have it in my collection for posterity. We will be doing much more business in the foreseeable future, count on it!!!
